Ray Hadley grills NSW Premier over government stuff-ups

Gladys Berejiklian spoke to Ray Hadley within minutes of becoming Premier in January.

At the end of her first year in the job, she joins Ray in the studio to discuss the highs and lows of 2017.

Ray began by asking the Premier when the funding crisis at Westmead Children’s Hospital will be fixed.

“We are working very hard behind the scenes. It’s not just the funding, there are other issues we are dealing with behind the scenes.

Premier Berejiklian also commented on the Blue Mountains Council being issued with a notice of suspension over the asbestos scandal.

“At the end of the day, public safety comes first and if the council doesn’t do the right thing we’ll have to consider our options.”

Ray also presented the Premier with photos of Container Deposit Scheme ‘Return and Earn’ sites across New South Wales, swamped in rubbish.

Ms Berejiklian admitted the scheme has gotten off to a rockier start than predicted.

“We never expected everything to be smooth sailing from day one. Could we have done better? Of course.”

Ray and the Premier also spoke about the new stadiums plan, hate speech laws and, of course, Ferry McFerryface.
